It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your sites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but securing all the other folders is very easy. In case a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host a couple of Internet sites, you can easily separate them from one another and keep them safe. The option must be activated for every single site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to control and shield your sites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the damaged website before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
